    "Rolls Royce estate car" - this car is likely, (though not certain), to be a Rolls Royce 20hp Shooting Brake.

    This IS a 1929 RR 20 HP shooting brake. I own it and have done a full ground up frame off restoration completed in 2008. You may see details about the car and it's restoration at:

    The car is in California. Subsequent to this 1967 movie, this chassis (GFN 72) broke down and the owner (Mr. Hopper Sr.) put the shooting brake coachwork onto 20 HP chassis (GEN36) and exported it to the USA in 1968. I bought it from the third USA owner in 1977.
